The Westinghouse Lighting 6-Inch Nipples are a great choice when constructing a new lamp or repairing an old one. This handy set includes two nipples, each one 6 in long. Nipples are pipe fittings with two male ends designed to connect two threaded female components, which are quite common in lamps. These nipples are zinc plated for durability and longevity. Both pieces are a standard threaded 1/8-IP size, making them compatible with common lamp parts.
